Im partial to cci standard vel myself or wolf match target or sk std +................

But i dont think you can beat $30 for 1600 rds of plinking ammo for your kids to shoot.
They are cphp's too so really you could hunt with them also........they look just like cci mini mags.

That is a heck of a deal. Especially when you consider where we were a few years ago.

Word of warning...

From a quick check, it appears that the .22 ammo is OOS online and at many of the stores.

Academy's inventory system sucks. Do NOT drive across town because the site says store XXX has it. If you call a store, ask the person you're talking to to put their eyes on the ammo. I've made more than one fruitless 20 mile drive to the one Academy store that claimed to have a particular ammo.

I never assume Academy has any item. I call the store, have the clerk get the item in his hand and put my name on it. They will usually hold it until the end of the day.

I was also very surprised to learn that Academy had stores in states other than Texas. I always thought they only operated here.

Cabelas is another place where you have to know what you are looking at and shop the sale items with caution. They will show a product group on sale, for instance a line of scopes and the ad will say some items on sale. The one item out of the batch that is on sale is usually the cheapest one and there were only one or two available at that price and they are gone. Then you get the pitch to move up for a little bit more.

They can be questionable, i worked for them when i was a kid several years ago at the Pensacola store.

They had a bunch of 22's, 9mm, 223 and others at the Ft. Smith store when i drove through so i snagged 4 cases of 22s for my boys.

I havent done the process yet but you have to attach several picts of the upcs and the receipt.

I didnt trust the guy that told me and so i looked it up before i bought any, the link to vista outdoors is the link for the rebate form/ process.
